The most incredible wedding day
We had our wedding at the Horn of Plenty in August and we had the most amazing day. Living in London and searching for a venue during covid we booked the venue based on their website and online reviews. We were nervous about this but we needn't have been! When we visited the venue for the first time we were blown away and knew we had made the right choice. From the outset the service was excellent. The staff were very friendly and professional and Mia, Shirna and Julie were always very prompt at responding to email communications and answered all of my detailed questions. The day before the wedding we had a handover meeting with Mia which was perfect as she ran through the details of the day and what to expect and she answered all of our questions. We also had a lot of decorations for our day but this was not a problem. Mia and her team did a great job at setting everything up on the day. On the day itself we ended up running quite a bit behind schedule (not any fault of the venue) but Mia and her team did everything they could to make it run smoothly. The venue itself is lovely and relaxing with beautiful rooms, amazing views of rolling hills and exceptional food. A month on and we are still receiving compliments on how great everything was. Overall, we would highly recommend the Horn of Plenty to others!

'Everything we dreamed of'
We had our wedding here in July this year. It was everything we dreamed of! From the beginning the venue had been perfect with Mia and Shirna being detailed orientated and ensuring I had all of my questions answered within a timely manner. We were able to visit the venue a few times around the COVID lockdowns and this made the experience even better. The day before the wedding we had a hand over meeting that ensured all of the details for the wedding were set and that Mia and Shirna took over everything to ensure that we all details were handled by themselves and we didn't have to worry about anything. we had around 30 people stay over the night before and had an informal meal with them all to start the celebrations off early, this was a lovely way to start of the wedding weekend. We had our ceremony on the lawn and it was perfect with the view and the weather we honestly couldn't have asked for a better day. With the weather being so good everyone went and sat under the big tree once the ceremony was finished with their drinks. We had around 70 people to the wedding day and this was perfect for us. The food was absolutely perfect and we had so many compliments about it all! In the evening it was nice to spread in the hotel and outside with the sun setting it was perfect. The next morning we had breakfast with all our guests who stayed the night. Mia and Shirna ensured the whole wedding was exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend the horn of plenty to anyone looking for a wedding venue with a view, great wedding planners who ensure your every need and want is met, incredible food and lovely atmosphere.

'Customer service blew us away'
We are planning our wedding next year at the Horn of Plenty and we are so excited! From the start, the customer service and meeting blew us away. Throughout the process, Mia and Shirna’s communication have been top notch. We met with the chef for over an hour and half to design our menu. We know our guests will be in for a treat and can’t wait to show them! Look forward to working with HoP team!

Absolute perfection!
We recently held our wedding reception at The Horn of Plenty and it was nothing short of perfect! From all the staff, the food, the grounds, the rooms.. all of it was exactly what we asked for. Nothing was too much trouble from our first meeting to the days following our wedding. Thank you so much!

The place that has it all
We recently got married at The Horn of Plenty, having a small late afternoon ceremony and dinner. From beginning to end, we all had the most wonderful time – fantastic surroundings, delicious food, and great service. If you like fine dining, a well-stocked bar, fabulous views and well-styled interiors – this place has it all!
